3 Techniques to Get Fit Fast
- High intensity interval training (HIIT). This simply means working short intervals of high intensity cardio into your strength-training routine. These cardio intervals can range from 20 seconds to 2 minutes. HIIT training enables you to burn more calories during your workout and hours after you’ve left the gym.
- Combination lifting. The concept here is combining two or more lifts into one exercise. For example, doing a squat at the same time as a bicep curl or a side lunge at the same time as a shoulder press. Because you’re working multiple muscle groups together, you burn more calories in a short time.
- Circuit training. This keeps you moving from exercise to exercise with no rest in between. So if you’re doing pushups, immediately go straight into a set of lunges. You’ve changed muscle groups, so you can rest the group you just exhausted, but still keep your heart rate up as you work your legs.
- Now go get your burn on!
